no, I don't know, either. Makes no sense.

I am going to have to set up cctv in the cold tank!

(andy, thank you, btw.)

I've heard many stories of them surviving winters in British ponds - and one of them being found in a pond by the new owners of a house. The pond had drained to a muddy gloop for, I seem to remember, some time and the new owners assumed the wriggling was newts. nope. dojos. not sure that they'd enjo...
